West Cumbria Rivers Trust and Hayton Castle Fields are working together to extend the existing gardening project at Hayton Castle into the woods! The woods have suffered decades of neglect resulting in fly tipping, poor water quality and invasive species. With our growing team of local volunteers and youth organisations we plan to create a haven for people and wildlife around Patten Beck.
Across 2017 we will be working together on:
This project is kindly funded by Greggs Foundation and will be combined into an existing weekly permaculture project. This will allow the young disadvantaged people we work with to also learn about woodland ecosystems as well as woodworking and construction skills. We also welcome other groups of any age to come and get involved. We will be offering workshops based around our woodland across the year.
Once finished we hope to offer the woodland area as a resource for education, relaxation and wellness.
